How much does it cost to

Hosting fitness events can create greater brand awareness and strengthen the community in your gym. Nevertheless, a successful event requires a clear purpose and intricate planning. To avoid burning cash, this article presents some pointers to consider before hosting your next fitness event.

Setting a budget is the first concrete step a business can take when planning for an event. The overall budget can be estimated from researching on past events and summing up the cost of each aspect of your event. 

Here are a few examples of events with varying budgets: 

Cru68 gym is a participating vendor in the upcoming Glow Festival. Glow Festival is a 9 day wellness festival held at Marina Bay Sands, hosting celebrity instructors including four of Cru’s fitness instructors. This large scale event presents a prime opportunity for Cru68 to build on its branding and acquire new customers. This exemplifies a high budget event as it is conducted in a prime venue with several vendors and a diverse line-up of events.

Led by Revolution’s star instructors, the event entails a 45 minutes spin class by the iconic HSBC rain vortex at Jewel Changi Airport.

Barre by the Beach is an outdoor workout inspired by ballet, strength training, pilates and yoga. In collaboration with Sentosa, this outdoor event presents a relatively more affordable event cost. 

Venue: Outdoor or indoor spaces, where to rent them and how much?
